Many professions have had EXTREMELY favourable incorporated tax treatments and raises since the early 2000s....
That's so early 2000s. I've never seen organizations package out VPs at the rate of the last two years. Unless those are the newly unemployed picking up golden parachute homes, colour me skeptical.

I could buy almost 80 acres with a new 4400 sq.ft. house for less than half of that 3 million. What a waste.

....^ I'll bet you think it's a waste.
But someone who wants Vancouver is gonna think that paying $300 ~ $400 K for a half acre in the Kootenays is equally a waste as well. :mrgreen:

That's true, I'd die of boredom in the countryside but I do understand why some people prefer it to city life. Just as well too, otherwise Vancouver homes would cost much more than they already do!

If it's in the boonies, sorry you wouldn't be able to pay me to live there.

Totally agree. Different people have different thinking. I know a friend who lives on the far east side of Maple Ridge, middle of nowhere. 15 minutes to gas station but he's got land. Asked him if he likes it there. Yes!! Reason is because of quietness and privacy. I can see living there for a week as a vacation getaway is ok, but anything more than that....I'll be looking to move back in the city ASAP!

$3,000,000 tear down!.....fawk. :shock:

$3,000,000 is more than most people will ever make in their lifetime. :shock:

Let's be serious for a moment.... that's a lot of money.
And the owner is gonna tear it down to build a new house? :shock:

What is that, a 50 foot wide lot? :shock:

Well ok, the s.a.v.v.y. people have tried to point out that something is going on here, in Vancouver, that is different.

This is certainly not "affordable" by Canadian standards. Would anybody else venture to explain why we are witnessing such a sustained disconnect between affordability and prices. :shock:

Why on earth would you want to travel when Vancouver is the Best Place On Earth?
Ski and sail and sun bathe....all on the same day... yes!!!

Or would you rather be putting out brush fires in California?
Or freezing in New York?
Or starving as 48 million people are on food stamps in the good 'ol U.S. of A....home of the hungry. :mrgreen:

So Vancouver home owners are all "small townish" and "never travel". Wow, and here I was thinking that we were a city of immigrants. :shock:

I have also been told that a lot of our high-end home purchasers are from Mainland China. I guess they must all come from the small villages and coming here was their first ever flight and their first visit to a city. Who would thought there was so much money to be made by poor folks working in paddy fields? :roll:
